fires were lit by the protesters as well. all is calm this morning. we do not have reports of injuries or anything like that. there were dozens of people arrested during the entire protest that lasted from the evening into early this morning. now, in large part, the news is the cleanup. will tran and is in downtown oakland to taking a look at some of the damage. >>will: at least 60 people were arrested after the bulk of the protests took place at the port of oakland. you almost get the sense that this storm is over and now the clean of. the cleanup is be done five protesters but the businesses the to the flooding. they are back at work, disregarding the vandalism. across the
street, things are even worse. there are a lot of people around here. a lot of people from oakland are saying that the destruction is not done from the people in oakland at least most of the destruction was not done by people from oakland, the people were from out of town. across the street there is a coffee shop. over here as well, look at that. almost everything within the two- three block radius from the epicenter of the encampment was not scared at all. they are saying that things are bad but maybe it is a means to an end. coming up at 8:30
a.m., i will show you another location that was badly hit. >>darya: originally they were protesting corporate greed, but many individuals are calling after their own causes. what is the next wave? we do not know. >>will: there's no remorse for the people we spoke with. everyone says so what. if it gets us to another
place in the movement, people is and work for a day or two is a necessary evil. >>darya: there are now grouped in with anti- government groups said everyone else who wants to make a point. sincthe >> you are seeing the same faces out here from before occupy oakland started, now, you have people coming in from different cities vandalizing our city. people are pointing fingers at us like we are the ones doing something wrong in. all we're doing is living in this city. if my sister works at this tilly's coffee
shop. the window is broken. what is that doing for their business? that is money that they're losing. if they already lost business after going on strike but now it will lose more money to six windows and all of the vandalism and tagging. go to your city and to tear up your city. do not come to oakland turn of our city. we did not like that here if >>darya: is there are still protests that are disrupting businesses in oakland. >>mark: at the port of oakland, a standout is continuing. occupy protesters blocking the entrance to a very busy port. craig skalar is live with the latest. >>craig: they have been here since early in the morning at adeline in the third. here is an overhead view. they're using a chain link fence. at one point the block to the entire engine section. trucks have been turning around all morning. >>mark: apologize, we lost crags. here was the scene
this morning. look at one of the vehicles trying to force their way through, into the port. they managed to get through but one of the protesters was injured. these are the only vehicles that we have seen getting through. gregg, that was quite a scene this morning with vehicles ramming their way through the blockade. >>craig: let me show you pictures from earlier. there were several that tried to force their way through the chain-link fence. we spoke with one of the protesters who said that they stood in the way, they stood their ground and the the guy turned around. others got through. none of the truck's drive to get through. i was told by a longshoreman that one of them is of course what is going on but he expressed frustration. he did not know what the point of coming to work was. >> they keep ordering us to come to work. that that's as in harm's way. we are ready
to go to work this, we are waiting for them to tell us if it is needed or not. >>craig: port operations are apparently back up and running at 7:00 a.m.. there could be other areas that are open and where people could get through but here at third and adeline, he conceded truck, let's, blocked off as it has been. we have not seen any police . everything is pretty much at a stalemate. >>mark: we have the video to show you as thousands of protesters, an estimated 7000 people marched towards the port. the port has been blocked ever since. on the right-hand side, thousands gathered, many of them left over night. the entrance is still blocked. this >>darya: we want to get a
look at traffic. we have a multiple hot spots. >>george: indeed we do. in san francisco, emergency or real work here on 101 southbound right where interest 80 and into the central freeway joins one of one southbound. there, you can see the caltrans crews. the left-hand lane is called off as far back as before the fifth street off ramp. here's a look at traffic headed west into the city, it is stop and go from the middle of this extension to the fifth street off ramp every means at all clear on the corner. it is also backing up traffic on the bay bridge toll plaza. it is a solid back up into the macarthur maze and around the corner on the berkeley qr. even 880 is backed up to the diamond lane split. this grant is solidly backed up. the drive times are 20-25 minutes and possibly more if
you are coming in from the macarthur maze. this is because caltrans has decided to do an emergency road repair here in san francisco. the left-hand lane is locked during the morning commute. what has to wonder about the wisdom of that decision. we are also attracting major delays into hayward out of oakland southbound towards marina boulevard. in earlier occurring accident adding about 15 minutes your drive times. conditions are a little better for 101 southbound out of this city. an accident at candlestick point now cleared from the lanes. your ride in the north bay is jammed out of petaluma into nevada because of an earlier lane closure that resulted from the emergency road repair that did not get picked up until 7:00 a.m. on 101 southbound. the time is 8:09 a.m., we have a routine traffic coverage, erika will be back with a bridge check in just a little bit. we will be

some drive times out of the macarthur maze. you could expect to see delays on 24 westbound leading to the bay bridge. again, this is because of problems in san francisco. that is not our only hotspot. san francisco and interstate 680, the san ramon valley. 680 southbound is jammed up completely leading to danville. the northbound right is backed up to all costa. the crash that stone belly wrote. continued delays into hayward on 80 south.
>>erica: a stalled vehicle has just been cleared from a fastrak league. traffic is not shuffling at the bay bridge toll plaza. at last check, the backup was well into the maze. drive times are now running over 30 minutes from the foot of the maze towards a fremont street. we do have problems in san francisco, certainly be aware of that as well., san mateo bridge, 17 minutes from end to and across the stand. at the golden gate bridge, nothing reported.-- on the san mateo bridge, 17 minutes from one end to the other. >>james: here is a view from the roof camera looking back out at san francisco. topping weather headlines,

>> how far are people willing to go? >> one trick to try to come through and i leaned on the front of the truck. he stopped. >>craig: i want to stress those were pickup trucks, none of the full tractor- trailer trucks tried to go through. last the longshoremen in as guy told me that there were 42 or at 8:00 a.m. cause and and and and and put the but they say that it will take a date or to to bring the court to back up to speed. it has less impact. protesters are looking to make their point. i have not seen any police. looks like there point is being made. >>mark: this started with a
march to the port of oakland yesterday. yesterday, a call for a general strike that started at frank ogawa plaza. 7000 people marched to the meat import to entrance, shedding things down. all the talk right you can see some of the damage that was done in downtown oakland as businesses were vandalized. at the bottom right, there were two demonstrators hit by a mercedes. they went to a hospital with broken and lower extremities. the victim is in the hospital. the driver was not arrested. the police are taking a hands-off approach. >>erica: we're getting several hundred comments on our facebook fan page. i have been asking viewers if they thought this strike was a success. we have posted some pictures on our facebook fan page. many people are commenting, here is what brent says.
